Contest is closed. Please don't add new projects.

qemu-omap3

  • Title: support beagle board emulation in qemu
  • beagleboard.org project: qemu-omap3
  • Short project description: Qemu-omap3 is an opensource project which adds omap3 related devices emulation into qemu. Beagle board is the primary devices to emulate.
  • Homepage: qemu omap3 emulation support
  • Expected results:
    • booting linux kernel and rootfs from nand and mmc image
    • Wiki page how to run qemu-omap3 for beagle board
  • Submission:
  • Contact: yajin AT vm-kernel.org

openGPS

  • Title: develop open source software to use BeagleBoard as a handheld GPS receiver
  • beagleboard.org project: none yet
  • Short project description: openGPS is a project to use a basic processing platform with open source software to develop a handheld GPS receiver. Using any of a number of available map data bases, such as Open Street Maps, a handheld GPS receiver would provide new capabilities that are not currently found in commercial receivers. In addition it would provide a platform for a number of customizations and expansion of capabilites.
  • Homepage: none yet
  • Expected results:
    • development of a display app with moving map capabilities
    • development of a user interface for handheld apps
    • integration with suitable LCD display
    • interface to map files on SD card
    • Wiki page on GPS receiver functions and features
  • Contact: Please add (obfuscated) mail address or Beagle IRC nick

Beagle Conference System

  • Title: Use beagle to come up with a conferencing system for home users
  • beagleboard.org project: BeagleConf
  • Short project description: This is a project that aims at bringing conferencing into the drawing rooms of users' homes. The idea is to use beagle, interface it with a webcam, internet (through ethernet/ wifi), usb bluetooth (to interface a integrated keyboard/ mouse), audio in and out of beagle interfaced with a microphone and the speakers of the tv (in the living room of the user), and use a conferencing software like Ekiga (or probably Skype?). The device should be extremely affordable (low cost), to bring conferencing to homes of common users.
  • Homepage: none yet
  • Expected results:
    • A 'complete' home conferencing system would include the 'unit' and a keyboard with an integrated mouse. The 'unit' shall consist of beagle, with interfaces exposed for USB webcam, audio in for microphone, audio out to connect to the TV, ethernet interface or another USB port for USB wifi and another USB port for bluetooth.
    • When the system is turned on, users shall be presented with a list of contacts that they could dial (probably a customized interface of Ekiga).
    • The software shall provide the users, the capability to add/ modify/ delete users and their contact details.
    • The software shall also provide for ways to chat (text) with the users.
    • The software shall be capable of running through a demo for the users which includes instructions for set up and usage.
  • Contact: Please add (obfuscated) mail address or Beagle IRC nick

BeagleRC

  • Title: Use a beagle board to drive a remote controlled car.
  • beagleboard.org project: None
  • Short project description: Connect servos to the beagle board expansion header, 802.11g wireless to the use port, and use joystick on a host to remotely control the servos.
  • Homepage: http://chrisd.info/portfolio/indexbeaglerc.shtml
  • Expected results:
    • Ability to control a RC car using only a beagle board and servos, this will work with both nitro and electric cars with mechanical speed controllers.
  • Contact: Please add (obfuscated) mail address or Beagle IRC nick

Linux Hard Real-Time (PREEMPT_RT) demo

  • Title: Test hard real-time (-rt) Linux kernel 2.6.28 on the Beagle, report and fix -rt related bugs, create real-time applications demo using OpenEmbedded / Ångström.
  • beagleboard.org project: None
  • Short project description: Make sure the TI OMAP device driver are -rt safe; Build a typical real-time user land set of application (Ångström based).
  • Homepage: http://www.axon.tv/
  • Note: Created a 4 months company traineeship position on Beagle Board work which has been filled by a student.
  • Expected results: hard sub 300 microseconds (us) scheduling latency for real-time class user space applications (targetting multimedia).
    • Real-time scheduled media playback. Less or no frame skips on video. Latency reports.
  • Contact: likewise IRC

USB Support in U-boot

  • Title: Add MUSB gadget support for OMAP3 to u-boot.
  • Homepage: U-boot musb gadget support
  • beagleboard.org project: http://beagleboard.org/project/Uboot+USB+gadget/
  • Short project description: Currently people require an extra serial adaptor to interact with u-boot, adding USB gadget support to u-boot enables the use of serial console, saving costs and troubles to BeagleBoard users. This enables as well the future application of the DFU patches to power fast software downloads without requiring MMC (but the DFU patches are a different can of worms to be accepted on mainstream u-boot).
  • Expected results: U-boot patch against u-boot omap3 git tree that enables booting beagleboard and appear as an USB serial adaptor (CDC class, so it can be used in Linux/OS x without major problems), and the modified .inf file for windows.
  • Contact: ddompe at IRC

James
